The Bible Told Me To

Bible Studies, Not Sessions’ Forte

The Bible has become Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ latest weapon. Our little Justice Department elf has used the holy book of devout Christians all around the world as a legitimate reason to authorize the separation of immigrant children from their parents at the border. “I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order,” the tiny evil man cited.

The full verse reads: Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”

Guess he doesn’t recall all the parts of the Bible that say to love your neighbor, be kind to the stranger, treat him as native-born. He also apparently forgot about a little thing called SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. Sessions quoted a scripture that has been used in some of the darkest times in human history — southern slavery, Nazi Germany, African apartheid. We already know that Sessions is a devout racist, we just didn’t think he’d have the balls to put it right out there in the open during these challenging times.

It’s been a rough run for the attorney general. Is he the next to go after this snafu? Trump’s been wanting to fire him for ages because… Russia.
